  • Active Cleansing Technology
    Up to 20% more effective at removing sludge than mineral oil.
  • Formulated with special base oils
    Reduces friction to lessen fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
  • Long-term oxidation stability
    Resists oil degradation throughout the oil-change interval.

Helps clean and protect for reduced engine noise

Ordinary oils can have high internal friction that affects engine efficiency. Cleaner engines can operate more efficiently. Efficient engines are likely to feel smoother and be quieter.

Shell Helix HX5 E motor oil contains special Active Cleansing Technology and helps engines to operate efficiently for a smoother and quieter drive.

The oil in a clean engine can flow more quickly to where it is needed and has improved access to surfaces, so that the engine is better protected. Shell Helix HX5 E goes on delivering its benefits throughout the oil-change interval.

Shell Helix HX5 E is specifically formulated for fuel-injection gasoline engines with blow-by-gas recirculation. It is also suitable for naturally aspirated or turbocharged indirect-injection diesel engines fitted with blow-by-gas recirculation.

Shell Helix tests

To clean and protect an engine, the oil must continue to perform until it is removed when the car is serviced. With some manufacturers recommending longer service intervals, an oil’s ability to stay fit is even more important. Throughout the oil’s life, it has to disperse more and more dirt – keeping it locked away and preventing it from being redeposited in the engine.

Our scientists perform a variety of tests that measure the ability of Shell Helix oils to resist breakdown and disperse dirt. We also test our competitors’ oils, so that we can benchmark our lubricants and demonstrate the benefits of using Shell Helix oils.

Why you should use Shell Helix HX5 G:

  1. Reduces friction to help improve fuel consumption.
  2. Up to 20% more effective at removing sludge from gasoline engines than a normal mineral oil.
  3. Resists oil degradation throughout the oil-change interval.
  4. Reduces oil volatility and therefore oil consumption.
  5. Smoother, quieter drive.
  6. Greater fuel efficiency.

Specifications and approvals

Because lubricants vary in quality, universal criteria are used to describe oil performance and usage. Shell Helix motor oils not only meet these increasingly demanding international specifications but usually surpass them. Shell Helix HX5 E exceeds these specifications: API SL/CF; ACEA A2.
